“This is an annual medical camp because we know how people suffer. It is not based on the data and next year we shall be in Gulu,” said Vasant Lakhani, founder Indo- Africa Charitable Society.

The camp has attracted over 20 specialized doctors with the capacity to conduct operation and surgery.

In 2007, they used $8,000, last years $44,000 and Lira medical camp is worth $50,000.
